Gonospermum, Lugoa and Tanacetum

The three genera Gonospermum, Lugoa and Tanacetum within the family of Asteraceae include only few species endemic to the Canary Islands. They usually occur in open, rocky spots in full sun in the upper succulent zone. In contrast to related genera (especially Tanacetum species) from the Mediterranean and Eurasia, all Canary species are woody sub shrubs with strongly dissected, feathered, aromatic leaves and ornamental, broad, bright yellow, or white terminal inflorescences on tall woody stems. All are most ornamental pot plants for any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. They make excellent, long lasting cut flowers as well. Keep frostfree at a minimum of some 10°C, drier and sunny in winter. Perennial Mediterranean and Eurasian Tanacetum species offerend on this page are fully winter hardy in Central Europe and enjoy any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot in the garden.
Sow dustlike or fine seeds from subtropical Canary species flat on any rich, well drained soil in full sun at some 20°C throughout the year. Do not cover seeds with soil and keep the latter always slightly moist from beneath.
Sow seeds from winter hardy Mediterranean and Eurasian Tanacetum species flat on any rich, well drained soil. Do not cover seeds and place pots in a protected and sunny spot outside. Transplant to the final spot in the garden as soon as plants are strong enough.
All subtropical Canary species are USDA Climate Zone 9.
All winterhardy Tanacetum species are USDA Climate Zone 6.
